John Lynch Issues Statement on 49ers LB Reuben Foster

Bentley told Judge Nona Klippen that Foster is pleading not guilty to the three felony charges he faces, and that the 49ers linebacker wants a preliminary hearing to be held within 10 days, as is his Constitutional right to a speedy trial. The woman flagged down a stranger's vehicle on Shannon Road and asked the driver to call 911, according to the Santa Clara County district attorney's office.In April, Foster's girlfriend, Elissa Ennis, issued a statement through her attorney, Stephanie Rickard, recanting the allegations and saying she made up the story about Foster punching her repeatedly in an attempt to "trash his career" after Foster tried to break off the relationship.Rickard provided the district attorney video evidence just two weeks ago that the defense says will exonerate Foster.

The alleged victim in the case against Reuben Foster initially told police the 49ers linebacker threw her out of his Los Gatos home three times following an argument on the morning of February 11, the last time after hitting her approximately 10 times "hard, but not that hard" with his fist.

Ennis now says she sustained those injuries in a road-rage incident that resulted in a fight with another woman and provided video of the purported incident. Foster has been charged with domestic violence with an allegation that he inflicted great bodily injury, forcefully attempting to prevent a victim from reporting a crime, and possession of an assault weapon.

He will be back in court May 17 for preliminary hearing. According to Barrows, the rifle was loaded and found on the bathroom floor upon the police's arrival. "In a statement through attorney Stephanie Rickard, Ennis said those allegations were "based on lies" and that "(Foster) did not strike her, injure her or threaten her". Jim Demertzis, supervising attorney in the DA's family violence unit, said after Foster's April 30 court appearance that the office was proceeding carefully.

The recanting also stated that Ennis "was extremely upset and told him if he broke up with her she would "trash his career" " and that she "apologizes to everyone that may have been harmed in this case, especially Mr. Foster". The team has said it will cut him if it's proven he hit Ennis, and he still could face at least a six-week National Football League suspension based on its domestic-violence policy.

Foster remains a member of the 49ers. "That's the standard we want on our team, that's the standard we are going to operate under".
